I am very happy this morning on a very personal geek note. I have always steered clear of the iOS devices due to my loathing of how they operate with iTunes. Now I have one of my favorite apps from that side coming over to Android. I absolutely love what can be done with this technology. I for one never want my boys to get an IKEA assembly manual in their lifetime.
Autodesk Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer allows you to view interactive, animated 3D assembly instructions created with Autodesk Inventor Publisher desktop software.
Some assembly required? Left the manuals back at the shop? Missed your last product training session? No problem.
With Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer, you can have important product information and instructions at your fingertips wherever you go. Users of the desktop version of Inventor Publisher software can easily publish and share interactive 3D instructions with others that have installed the free* Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer app via Cloud Storage or locally on their own companies’ website, e-mail or intranet.
Together, Inventor Publisher and the Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer App deliver next generation instructions for visually explaining your ideas, designs, and products. So you can:
• Communicate how your products get assembled, used, taken apart, and serviced – or simply what’s great about them.
• Reduce your documentation, service, support and training costs.
• Arm your sales force with 3D to win new business.
Once you’ve experienced instructions in 3D, you’ll never look at documentation the same way again.
